We'll figure it out. can you first provide a link to the show's detail page.

(i didn't like my own suggestion, will have to wait for a file-level person)

cheers

I'll have to figure something else out. I've done other uploads with only .ffp (FLAC Fingerprint) fiels for verification and they have gone up fine. I guess I'll need some third party MD5 maker to make .md5 checksums for .flac files. FLAC's use fingerprints (.ffp) for verification and not typically .md5 files. I'm no full on expert though.

Carbon Shorten (www.hornig.net/shorten) will create md5's for any type of file. :)

Also, this may be a long shot, but what version of xACT are you using for ffp generation? d20 and d21 had a Unicode string bug that made the ffp's act whacky; it was fixed by d22, I think. Or you could try using MacFLAC to re-create the ffp...

Do you mean the external file? FFP's aren't directly used for verification here, so even if the FFP had a problem the system would perform a flac -t bypassing that as a potential issue. As long as the internal checksum passes (along with any included MD5's), the show will move along.

Any new news here? The fingerprint should check out okay. What needs to be done here?

From the FAQ's:

Why don't I get an email when my uploads fail MD5 checksums?

The system currently only sends emails when MD5 files are included. This means that, if you're uploading FLAC files, you still need to generate and include an MD5 file if you want to receive informational emails about the failures.

A recommended tool for creating these files is MD5summer. Please note that before uploading the MD5 created with this tool you should open the MD5 in a text editor and remove the top 3 lines so the first signature is now flush with the top of the file.


Automated systems are much more efficient than asking an admin to do it by hand for you. Please make an MD5 and include it with your upload, click "Mark Resolved" and it will send you an email letting you know which file fails. It is too time consuming for us to have to do this by hand for you on every upload that has a failing file.

Thanks,

-Brad

I'd use MD5summer but again, Im on a mac. I just made one with Carbon Shorten. I just don't understand why I have uploaded a bunch of other shows without them and had downloaded a whole tons of shows without "md5" checksums but "ffp" fingerprints instead.

I just don't understand why I have uploaded a bunch of other shows without them

Because nothing failed in your other uploads. This time something does, and you need to upload the MD5 so the system will generate an email and send you the information about what files are failing. The system does not "Require" MD5's (yet), if you upload flac files and they all pass the internal verification (note - not the FFP) the show will move through the contribution center correctly. However, if something fails the internal check and there is no MD5 included with the show, you will not get an email until you create an MD5, upload it to the server, and click "Mark Resolved" to submit it for another MD5check.

So after making an md5 with carbon shorten (one that verifies pver here) It's still not passing. I tried deleting the ffp from the upload.

What now?

Did you upload the MD5 to the show folder on our server and click "Mark Resolved"? It will send you an email with details of failing files. You will need to delete and reupload the failing files. There is no need to delete the FFP, as I mention above - that file is ingnored in the Contribution Engine.
